I won’t say much. During these Holy Days, we have enough to reflect on. God loved – loves – us. Jesus came and served us, as an example. He loved us enough to die. He lived a life of peace even among those who wanted to fight and kill. And in the end, he showed us that new life comes from such a life of love, service, and peace. Beyond our fear, our anger, our grief, Jesus waits for us. God’s love is unfathomable, beyond our understanding or our merit.
Come to church on Sunday. Come to begin a new relationship with the risen Christ. Come to sing and dance with the one who could not be conquered by hatred and fear. Come early, for the most ancient and powerful liturgy of the Church, the Easter Vigil. Come for breakfast. Stay for trumpets and butterflies and eggs. Bring someone who hasn’t been in a while. Share the fullness of life in Christ.
Soon, I’ll say the “A” word with you!
